One has ADHD/Anxiety/Growth Hormone Deficiency.
The other has SPD/Anxiety/Sleep Disorder/Communication Delay.
But they, and we, don’t let that stop us.
We figure out how to overcome our challenges one hurdle at a time.
Here is a little blurb I wrote about SPD a long time ago, back when I couldn’t handle the term SPD, and very temporarily renamed it Sensory Processing Dynamics. I have since come to an understanding with SPD, and accept it in all its forms. But this blurb meant a lot to me in the past:
Sensory Processing Disorder.
Docile. Super Power Drama. Super Power Destructive. Super Power Distressing.
Yup. Super Power Dynamics.
Sensory Processing Disorder to me, at this point in our adventures, is a little too real. And, we are a “Super” family (superman – man of steel – family of Steele – get it?). And, this blog is about finding the hope in the despair. And one of the ways you can find hope, is to just put a positive spin on things.
Trust me, it has been a long road to get to finding hope in the darkness. In fact, I am still “faking” it till I make it. And that is OK. Because as long as I can perceive there is hope, there is a reason to fight.
And with SPD – all I can do – is fight. Fight for my son. Fight for my family. Fight for myself. So changing the words around from Sensory Processing Disorder to Super Power Dynamics – why the hell not? I am not, by any means, taking away or trying to distance from SPD, I am just trying to find our light on a dark path.
And here, you will find my raw emotions. My feelings. My pain. My despair. I will be writing of the adventures we are having – good and bad. I will be real. I will be true. I will also be fighting the stormy seas, reaching out for hope. Finding my anchors.
